Is 0 A.D. still in development?

Recommended Posts

Hi together,

 

0 A.D. is a great game! But last alpha is from 2018.

Is the new alpha still in development or aren't there enough working people anymore?

Yes, it very much is. The last commit for the current stable (A23) was 21946; work on the next (A24) started on 26 December 2018. Right now we're at 23493, which means there have been 1547 commits in the past 14 months.

Well it will likely still be long time in dev.  three sources  https://trac.wildfiregames.com/timelinehttps://trac.wildfiregames.com/milestone/Alpha 24  culmination of that (bit outdated) https://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/Alpha24 , http://irclogs.wildfiregames.com/  and  some forum posts on this forum.

I believe that after the last barbarian invasion, the last developers were defeated and died on the battlefield. So, I think 0 A.D. game may now go through a long period of darkness, a kind of "Dark Age", and perhaps be a thousand years without a new release. Maybe in 3020 we will have a new Alpha ...

I hear, they are planning to make 'Empires Besieged'. Well, I hope they would decide to make something at fantasy setting, because that 'alternate history' style is pretty sad, lean, and boring.

Not enough. They are maded by 'franchises'. I expect something separaterd from 'third-party' universes (maybe Wesnoth in 3D RTS). Age of Mythology was too boring, because of too much simple antic structures, disguisted design, etc. RoN:RoL - that is good example of not ordinary fantasy without stupid 'meduses', 'vikings' or another popular cliche. And I'm not brony to accept Pony... The second reason to make fantasy style is no needs to be historical accurate. Especially in the naming. 0 A.D. as I understand it is 'fiction' 0 Anno Domini? What kind of 'Domini'?:D

The third reason to make fantasy - is that the historical games, especially that bronse age, feels not like game, but like Provincial Museum (of Archeological Fakes). I'm sorry, but known history is not science in classical description and was allways politicized, prestigious historians can be bribed and promote fake opinion by decades. How much more antique fakes should be revealed - no one will know. So... Interesting things, I would say. 0 A.D. is already kinda semi-fantasy game, but not so spectacular as RoL. If you understand what I mean. I hope, developers are sure in the sources of which they're copying armor and weapon.
